BACKGROUND Evidences supporting the use of ICP monitoring after aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH) are limited. The aim of our paper is to examine whether elevated intracranial pressure (ICP) and ICP-derived variables predict mortality and functional outcomes after aSAH. METHODS A systematic review of the literature was performed through PubMed and(More)
A case of acquired ocular-motor apraxia featured by failure in voluntary initiation of lid closure, horizontal and vertical eye movements is reported. Electrographic and neuropsychological assessment pointed out several signs referable to bilateral frontal and right parietal lobe involvement, confirmed by neuroradiological finding.
OBJECTIVE Delayed post-traumatic mucoceles are rare. We describe the surgical treatment of a post-traumatic ethmoidal mucocele with intra-orbital extension. METHOD A uninostril endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) was performed. The access was contralateral to the lesion to provide a wider lateral view. After a large sphenoid and ethmoid sinuses opening,(More)
Delayed cerebral vasospasm has classically been considered the most important and treatable cause of mortality and morbidity in patients with aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (aSAH). Secondary ischemia (or delayed ischemic neurological deficit, DIND) has been shown to be the leading determinant of poor clinical outcome in patients with aSAH surviving the(More)
Dear Editor, We would like to report a well-documented case of diagnostic dyspraxia as a consequence of a ruptured distal anterior cerebral artery (DACA) aneurysm. Radiological findings on tractography permit a better understanding of the physiopathology and anatomo-clinical correlations between diagnostic dyspraxia and intracranial hemorrhage secondary to(More)
